Why Training Ground? 

It has been said that wisdom is knowledge applied.  Wisdom isn't an accomplishment as much as it is an understanding--an understanding of our own foolishness.  It was a privilege to have an older man initiate me as a boy, and it is a privilege to leave footsteps behind to those young men who also desire a path.  I believe Training Ground restores the application process of wisdom heritage from seasoned men to younger men in a broken male society and has put me in a position to bless, and be blessed, in this initiation process.
